This piece of equipment, identified only by its Union Pacific valuation number, 8852002, is a “car mover.” It is a type of equipment designed for moving small numbers of freight cars at low speed around a yard, and is fitted with both railroad wheels and rubber tires so that it can leave the railroad track and drive itself to other locations in the yard. This example is a model 300CM, serial number 191C, built by Pettibone around 1985 at the company’s plant in Chicago. This unit’s last assignment was the railroad yard in Rochelle, Illinois.
